Online entry is requested since this assists us in our administration and overcomes errors due to handwriting interpretation.  This means that your name will appear correctly in the published programme!

Due to changes in Data Protection legislation it is necessary for each competitor to REGISTER  first. You need only register once and then you can enter as many classes as you like.
